A Tremendous Thank You to WIFI for selecting me as the 2022 recipient for the scholarship in honor of Edith Cameron!
I have officially been with Delta Secondary for a year today! I began my journey alongside Delta with no prior experience in the fastener industry, so as you can imagine, it was quite daunting since this industry contains a wealth of endless information to learn. And while I am still learning new things in my sales position every day, my colleagues at Delta have been outstanding mentors to me and I am so grateful for their knowledge, patience and leadership.
With this opportunity that WIFI has so graciously provided, I will be able to expand my knowledge and connections at the International Fastener Expo 2022 and for that, I am honored!
Michelle Richards, Original Engineered Products, is the winner of the Edith Camerson (IFE) Scholarship. The International Fastener Expo will give Michelle the opportunity to network and build relationships within the fastener industry.
Michelle is a Distribution Sales Specialist for OEP. She has been in the fastener industry for 25 years. She has a passion for learning, building relationships, and connecting people in the fastener industry.
I am sincerely honored to have been selected as a recipient of the Edith Cameron Scholarship. Thank you for your generosity, which will allow me in-person integration back into the fastener industry and fastener family in my new role as a Distribution Sales Representative for OEP. Attending IFE 2022 will afford me many opportunities to network, connect and begin new customer relationships as well as reconnect with all the existing relationships that I am fortunate to already know. As I grow, learn, and succeed in my new role, I will be ever grateful and thankful for this experience.
